Soybean Futures jumped by almost 5 percent today following one of the biggest routs in price in more than two years. According to a report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture the United States will harvest 7.3 percent less this year compared with last. The drop in Soybean Futures started last month on concerns that growth would slow in China where the commodity has seen much of its growth over the past decade. Those fears where eased today following data released by the USDA that showed that global consumption of cooking oils has not fallen during any recession in the past thirty years.
Soybean Future hit a three years higher on the Chicago Board on August 31st but started to plunge 20 percent from then.
